Fear of something (or someone) and phobias can cause us to become anxious whenever we are in certain situations. I know this from experience. I have been afraid of snakes my entire life. When I was 5 years old the little boy next door chased me and put a garter snake down my back and I have never forgotten how traumatic that was. Whenever I would go hiking, walk in a field or the woods, or work in the garden I would constantly think about seeing a snake, and if I did see one, I would panic, scream and run. I couldn’t watch snakes on TV or movies, or even look at them in books. Forget about walking past the reptile cages in the pet stores! When I was learning EFT my teacher (and now mentor) worked with me and my fear of snakes to demonstrate a technique we use called the Movie Technique. After my session I was shown a video of many snakes in a room and it didn’t bother me in the least. I actually found it quite interesting! Now whenever I hike or am in the woods I don’t think about seeing snakes anymore, and if I do see one I may get startled but I no longer go into panic mode. This makes walking in the woods and working in the garden much more enjoyable!
EFT is a wonderful technique to use for many fears and phobias. If you find that you are not enjoying life to the fullest because of your fear of something or a phobia, contact me for a free consultation. We can chat about what is going on and how EFT can help.
